Me too! Here's the only ones I did scan, and not the best, but there you have them...and yep, I think you responded yrs ago when for some odd reason we chatted about my having watched an ibex kid fall a great distance off a cliff, land in the only pool of water in the cyn, and scamper straight up the cliff face to mom with nothing more than a look of "how embarrassing!?!"...saw a great many of them...

Makes AZ look like a veritable jungle!

Don't get me wrong, I do love the Sonoran Desert! Have I said I'm not going to miss the heat though???

Nice!!! wasnt expecting you the throw a few up there so quickly, but thanks!! :) I like those shots - so bizarre thinking of a very wet slimy frog in the middle of a desert. The first one captures the bleak, yet beautiful nature of that desert quite well.

Thanks WT :)

When I lived in Paulden AZ (Don't blink or you'll miss it, 30 some miles west of Sedona as the Raven flies) there was a flood plain just below my place. Had the frogs that go dormant underground when it's dry, but after a good summer rain would have a veritable cacophony of croaking for a few nights, then back to sleep till the next one...

our natural world is unreal huh? amazing the survival mechanisms with which nature has provided her creatures. i am constantly amazed (no wonder i am addicted to Nat Geo, Animal Planet, and the Science channel)
